Hon'ble madras High Court extends the stay granted to the BSNL Corporate Office letter, banning demonstrations, dharna, etc..

The BSNL Management issued letter on 02-07-2019, banning demonstrations, dharna, etc., till the completion of the 8th Membership Verification. BSNL Management had also threatened in that letter, that any union organising demonstrations, dharna, etc., would be debarred from participating in the 8th Membership Verification. This is a serious attack on the trade union rights in BSNL. Hence, BSNLEU filed a writ petition in the Hon'ble Madras High Court. On hearing our arguments, the Hon'ble High Court granted interim stay to the BSNL Corporate Office's letter dated 02-07-2019. Thereafter, the stay was extended up to 26-08-2019. In the mean while, the BSNL Management filed it's petition to vacate the stay. The efforts of BSNL management to vacate the stay became futile. The Interim Stay granted earlier has been further extended until 12-09-2019. This is a severe blow to the BSNL Management's autocratic methods to curb trade union rights in BSNL. It is also a great victory to BSNLEU, in it's struggle to uphold trade union rights.

Hindi translation of "Hon'ble madras High Court extends the stay granted to the BSNL Corporate Office letter, banning demonstrations, dharna, etc."

माननीय मद्रास हाइकोर्ट ने BSNL कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस के धरना, प्रदर्शन पर प्रतिबंध के आदेश पर जारी स्थगन (स्टे) की अवधि बढ़ाई...
BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा 02-07-2019 को 8वें मेम्बरशिप वेरिफिकेशन की समाप्ति तक प्रदर्शन, धरना आदि किए जाने पर प्रतिबंध के आदेश जारी किए थे। उस पत्र में BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा यह भी धमकी दी गई थी कि किसी भी यूनियन द्वारा प्रदर्शन, धरना आदि किए जाने पर उक्त यूनियन को 8वें मेम्बरशिप वेरिफिकेशन में शिरकत करने हेतु अपात्र कर दिया जाएगा। यह BSNL में ट्रेड यूनियन अधिकारों पर गंभीर हमला है। अतः, BSNLEU ने माननीय मद्रास हाइकोर्ट में रिट पिटीशन दायर की थी। हमारे तर्क सुनने के बाद, माननीय मद्रास हाइकोर्ट ने BSNL कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस द्वारा जारी पत्र दिनांक 02-07-2019 पर अंतरिम स्थगन आदेश जारी किए थे। तत्पश्चात स्थगन अवधि 26-08-2019 तक बढ़ाई गई थी। इसी दौरान BSNL मैनेजमेंट ने स्थगन खारिज करने हेतु पिटीशन दायर की। आज केस की सुनवाई हुई। माननीय उच्च न्यायालय ने BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा प्रस्तुत तर्कों को अस्वीकार करते हुए स्थगन की अवधि 12-09-2019 तक बढ़ा दी है। यह BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा BSNL में ट्रेड यूनियन अधिकारों पर अंकुश लगाने के तानाशाहीपूर्ण तरीकों पर करारा तमाचा है। साथ ही, यह BSNLEU के ट्रेड यूनियन अधिकारों की रक्षा के लिए किए गए संघर्ष की जीत भी है।

Organise demonstrations on 27.08.2019 in support of the striking Defence employees.

As has already been informed through our website yesterday, the employees of the 41 Defence Production Units (ordnance factories) are on a massive 30 day strike from 20th August, 2019. They are not on strike for any economic demand. Rather, they are opposing the decision of the Narendra Modi government to corporatise all the 41 ordnance factories. Everyone knows that corporatisation is the major step towards privatisation of the ordnance factories. BSNLEU heartily congratulates the brave comrades of the ordnance factories. The Central Trade Unions have called upon the working class of the nation to extend their support to the strike of the Defence employees, by way of organising demonstrations on 27.08.2019. CHQ calls upon circle and district unions to effectively organise demonstrations on 27.08.2019, supporting the strike of the Defence employees.

Central Trade Unions congratulate Defense Employees for successful strike in the interest of working people of the country.

   The Central Trade Unions (CTUs) namely INTUC, AITUC, HMS, CITU, AIUTUC, TUCC, SEWA, AICCTU, LPF, UTUC in their meeting on 21st August 2019, at Delhi congratulated the defense employees for successful strike from 20th August in all industrial, non-industrial (Clerical, office staff) defense production units,Junior Officers, Charge Hands have walked out of 41 ordnance factories (OF) as declared almost a month back, against Modi Government’s plans to corporatize and then to privatise them. This move of the Government will put national security at risk and hence is anti-national.

   The Government wants these 41 Indian Ordnance Factories to produce Rs. 30,000 Cr worth of goods by 2024. The Unions have accepted the challenge, but want the government to assure them that the plans to corporatize the ordnance factories will be shelved.

   The workmen in essential services like fire-fighting, water and electric supply, hospitals in the Ordnance Factories colonies have also struck work, but are back manning those services voluntarily, foregoing the salaries for the days of strikes.

   This massive strike has been peaceful, except in West Bengal, where the oldest ordnance factories are situated. There are reports that the Police lathi-charged the striking workers, injuring scores of them, four seriously. We condemn this unprovoked lathi-charge.

   The CTUs call upon the Modi Government to pay heed to the voice of these soldiers behind the lines, who have struck work not for any of their immediate financial demands but for guaranteeing the supply lines to our Armed Forces. The Government’s plans of corporatization of ordnance factories will jeopardize just that guarantee.

   CTUs also extended their support to the agitations being carried out for almost a month against the move of corporatisation of production units in Railways with an eye on its huge lands and resources actually to pave way for privatisation to benefit corporate houses. It is hearting to note that the family members of the affected employees are also participating in these agitations.

    We call upon all our affiliated unions and Independent Federations/Associations to organise solidarity action programmes on 27th August throughout the Country in support of striking defense employees and agitating railway employees.
